Webb Slams Lieberman: He's Calling For War With Iran "Every Day" By Greg Sargent | bio
Jim Webb's appearance on Meet the Press is justly getting lots of attention for his barbed exchange with Lindsay Graham, but it shouldn't pass unnoticed that Webb also ripped into Joe Lieberman for his relentless war-whooping towards Iran. Webb said:
Senator Lieberman attacked me on a show on Monday. You know, Senator Lieberman, every day, is calling for a war against Iran and probably Syria. Maybe a, maybe a, maybe they can tell us where the, the line should be drawn. Maybe, maybe the United States military, all of it, should go to the Middle East and stay all the time. Somewhere in here there has to be a rational line that protects the well being of our troops.
Webb was responding to the fact that Lieberman had repeatedly attacked him last week. At one point Lieberman even opined that by proposing longer home stays for the troops, Webb was "sniping" at them. I'd been wondering when Webb would hit back. Now he has.
